Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

LESCAUT
Bello!
Entrano alcuni personaggi con fogli di musica; si avanzano ad inchini e si schierano da un lato avanti a Manon.
Che ceffi son costor?
Ciarlatani o speziali?

MANON
annoiata
Son musici! È Geronte che fa dei madrigali!

English Libretto or Translation:

LESCAUT
Beautiful!
Enter some characters with sheets of music; they advance to bows and side on one side ahead of Manon.
What kind of thugs are they?
Charlatans or apothecaries?

MANON
bored
They are musicians! It is Geronte who makes madrigals!
